After being a loyal Thai Luang fan for the past 12 years, I had noticed in a recent visit that the food was off. Come to find out that everything loved about the restaurant (food, service, hospitality) has moved on to a new restaurant. The chef and manager apparently had a falling out with the family owners after 18 years. Their new place, Thai Tada, takes the space of the old Tarin Thai restaurant. Make no mistake, the food here is no longer the Americanized, "Panda Express" version of thai food that simply was labeled because there were bird chilis and peanut sauce sprinkled around.
Ask for the special thai nut mix at the bar, mussels, and of course crispy duck that's actually crispy. Check it out.
